Benchmarking and improvements of measurement techniques for local-time-averaged two-phase flow parameters

Benchmarking and improvements of measurement techniques for local-time-averaged two-phase flow... Accurate measurements of local time-averaged two-phase flow parameters is of fundamental importance for the evaluation of two-phase flow models as well as for the development of closure relations used in the two-fluid model. For cross-calibration purposes, we compared the measurements of local-time-averaged two-phase flow parameters using a four-sensor conductivity probe developed by the TRSL (Thermal-hydraulics and Reactor Safety Laboratory) at Purdue University, and a four-sensor optical probe developed by the CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission). A system coupling methodology was also performed in order to isolate the effects of each instrumentation's components, i.e., probe, acquisition, thresholding, and processing effects. Experimental results have shown a reasonable agreement in the local void fraction, local bubble velocity, and local interfacial area concentration measurements comparisons. However, it is shown that particular attention must be given to the sensor probe design in order to get accurate measurements. Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
